Pentagram, metals, planets, zodiac

“Paracelsus, Agrippa, Kircher, Lully and numerous other magicians and astrologers have tabulated the gems and stones corresponding to the various planets and zodiacal signs.”

The Pentagram

In symbolism, an inverted figure always signifies a perverted power. The average person doesn’t suspect the occult properties of pentacles. On this subject, Paracelsus has written: “No doubt many will scoff at the seals, their characters, and their uses, which are described in these books, because it seems incredible to to them that metals and characters which are dead should have any effect. Yet no one has ever proved that the metals and also the character as we know them are dead, for the salts, sulphur, and quitessences of metals are the highest preservatives of human life and are far superior to all other simples.”
